| The popular board game comes alive in this hilarious comedy!
Clue" (the movie), features just about every great comedy actor of the day. From Leslie Ann Warren to Michael McKean to Eileen Brennan to Howard Hessman to the priceless Tim Curry, they're all here! -- If you are familiar with the board game, just picture a film version of the search for "whodunit". This laugh-a-minute fun fest is loaded with outrageous, silly slapstick, superbly acted out by the great cast.

You'll be amazed at how many of the lines and gags get stuck in your head. I'll never be able to forget the flustered looks of Mrs. Peacock, the wit and charm of Wadsworth or the subtle facial expressions of Mrs. White. The picture in this WIDE SCREEN VERSION is the best yet of this film since it's initial release.

The soundtrack is kept in it's original mono, still I'd greatly enjoy hearing a stero or, even better, a surround sound version in the future. Now you have the option of really not knowing who did it until the final scenes play bringing surprise into the untold repeat viewings that are sure to occur.

Trivia

Tom Stoppard was initially approached to write the screenplay. He worked for a year before giving up and returning all the money he had already been paid. Executive producer and story writer John Landis next approached Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, both of whom asked for far too much money.


Quotes

Wadsworth: Is everything ready?
Yvette: Oui, Monsieur.
Wadsworth: You have your, um, instructions.


Goofs

One ending includes a reference to Perry Mason. While the TV series did not start until after the setting of the movie; the radio series, books, and movies featuring Warren William existed and were quite popular.


Crazy Credits

The end credits begin with "Clue" game cards that are flipped over to reveal pictures of the main characters and the names of the actors that played them.


Alternate Versions

There is a very large cut in the film when aired on Comedy Central and the Fox Family Network. When Green and Yvette stand at the bottom of the stairs and decide who is to go first, there are a number of scenes showing the other guests looking throughout the house before going back to Yvette and Green, where she says "Go on! I'll be right behind you!" This is how it is found in the theatrical version. On the television version, the scene of the two deciding who is to go first and the the "Go on!" scene are joined together, making one scene. All of the scenes in between are edited out. Also edited out is a scene of Scarlet and Mustard in the Billiard room, and a shot where Mrs White is in a darkened room saying "Are you in here? I'm coming"
